Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

Auracore MediaWorks
3 January 2011
  • Summary: Golden Sun is back, all of its perks and quirks intact.
  • Pros: Vibrant art and graphics; tons of djinni to choose from; new psynergy mechanics; useful mid-dialogue encyclopaedia.
  • Cons: Cliche-filled storyline; dialogue goes on and on and on; very low difficulty level; puzzles are a lot simpler; no true feeling of story interaction; seriously they just won't stop talking.
